A tradition of the Second Year Council at the University of Virginia is to put on the Second Year Dinner Series, a series of five dinners where second year students get to enjoy catered food, listen to a professor speaker, and interact with professors and students. These dinners give second years the opportunity to listen to lectures on a variety of topics and themes, and to get to know professors that are in a department they may be interested in pursuing, or just have a broad interest in generally. This tradition is solely for second years, so we encourage students to enter the lottery for a spot so they can enjoy free food and interesting conversation!
The attendees for these dinners will be based on a random lottery system, and spots are limited in Alumni Hall! If you are chosen, you will receive an email to confirm your attendance. We hope you are as excited about attending these dinners as we are about creating them for you!
